Submitted by North Thurston Education Foundation
The North Thurston Education Foundation (NTEF) has a robust scholarship program that provides funds for North Thurston Public Schools (NTPS) graduates who will attend post-secondary schools, including vocational or trade schools, colleges or universities. While school counselors typically support students applying for scholarships, remote and hybrid learning models during COVID-19 have changed standard practices and one-on-one mentoring. NTEF would like to remind students and families that scholarships are open and provide the information and resources necessary for students to complete scholarship applications.
NTEF awarded 62 scholarships in 2020 valued at approximately $151,000. The scholarship program includes designated named endowed scholarships and Foundation-funded scholarships. Each scholarship has a minimum value of $2,000 and each NTPS high school will receive at least one scholarship. Some scholarships are renewable from year to year. Completed applications must be submitted to the student’s school (NTPS only) counseling/career center or mailed to NTEF on or before the April 15, 2021 deadline.

Incorporated in 1989, the North Thurston Education Foundation is an independent, tax-exempt non-profit volunteer organization that raises funds to eliminate financial barriers to student success among North Thurston students from low-income families. In addition to the scholarship program the Foundation provides staff at each district school with student assistance funds that can be used for student needs that can’t be met with public funds; provides financial help to the district’s more than one thousand homeless students; and makes grants to teachers for special classroom projects. More information about the Foundation is available at North Thurston Education Foundation website.
